Isaiah 53:5 helps us understand that through the cross of Jesus Christ, God simultaneously displayed His love, while dealing with the problem of sin:
Mercy and judgment kissed at the cross. “For God so loved the world that He gave His one of a kind, uniquely brought forth son, that WHOEVER believes in Him will not perish, but have eternal life” (John 3:16).
